    Wife told me to place an order to get the triple promo yesterday. Said OK, will do! Read this thread and saw the Rat was OOS, so started sweating. Cursed. Then realized...oh...wait...didn't she wake me up in the middle of the night to place the order? Check LEGO.com...yep. I'm getting old. Placed the order in the middle of the night, took screenshots just in case and everything.

    Mine also cancelled. Apparently I cancelled the rat myself. Hopefully I'm not cancelling orders in my sleep.

    I may have mentioned this before - they heavily courted the SoCal AFOLs then passed over all the folks with LEGO talent and went with personalities that would make good TV. So don’t expect the show to be about amazing MOCs or build technique. It’s about competition and drama. And a smashed LEGO creation or two. Interestingly, Jamie Berard is one of the judges (see interview on BrickSet) and he is one of the uber-talented formerly AFOL now Master Builder and also has a great personality. I do know a couple of the contestants (I don’t know who won though) so I will definitely be watching. Should be pretty entertaining.

    Did you add a small item to that, so your promos ship earlier? If your Vader castle doesn’t ship until mid-Feb, and they run out of promos, you’ll be SOL otherwise. You should be able to add a keychain via online chat or calling customer service.

    A store where your other half learns how much that MF or ISD you got before Xmas really cost. 🤣. or A chain of stores opened by Alceon just in time for the Australian Retail Apocalypse of 2020 (hyperbole from ACA) or A chain of stores selling City sets at RRP and you can watch them dusting said sets every morning.

    As I told LEGO - I vote for UCS A-Wing. But since that is (sadly) NOT available, I voted for the Tie Bomber. I already built Mortesv's Nebulon-B Medical Frigate (all 4-ft and 5500+ pieces of it)! At that scale + Disney tax, it would inevitably be around $600-$700 range. I admit the building is very tricky in places and I ended up having to disassemble and reassemble the part that hangs down from the main body a couple of times because the instructions weren't completely clear to me. But I have a hard time believing LEGO would improve on his design: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-5083/cjd_223/mortesvs-ucs-nebulon-b-medical-frigate/#comments Although the Gunship would be cool, we already have several versions of it with minifigures. It would almost be another remake. On the other hand, we have a grand total of one (1) Tie Bomber... ever (# 4479). I know Ties in general are not very popular, but what I would propose is a Tie Bomber display piece like military bombers do with their ordinance on display in front of it (see pic). The Tie Bomber has A LOT of ordinance available to it from ship-to-ship to ground assault. You can even remove the weapons bay and insert a transport module for up to six people. So I propose one minifigure (Tie Bomber Pilot) but a TON of ordinance to display and possibly the crew transport module as an insert. (Could add some Imperial Officers as minifigures for the crew compartment). They could even open the weapons pod and show how it is loaded with ordinance. With the ordinance and transport insert the Tie Bomber could end up being one of the best UCS display pieces ever and it should still be in the $200 - $250 range.

    What I am implying is, relax. You made good decision loading up on this one. No need to F5 SAH every 10 min. Just move on to the next set and enjoy the ride into orbit (see what I did there) when retailer stock poofs. Love you not Tabby. Mr. Salt

    translation from the articel to solve the mystery: "If the locomotive looks a little familiar to you, no wonder. It is the locomotive from the LEGO Railway Set 7810. The set was released in 1980 and consists of 97 individual parts and a minifigure. The Danish toy manufacturer appears to be celebrating the 40th anniversary of this set with this addition. We don't know exactly why this set was selected, because in 1980 there were a total of 28 LEGO railway sets. Perhaps one reason could be that this locomotive was probably the only one in the year that had to do without railway doors."

    Sounds like that is more likely a 5-finger discount.

    An adults only build a Bear event for valentines ... that’s not going to social experiment in collective loneliness. Happy to see the further overlap of the hidden side and chocolate box promos.

    my only advice is don't look at what our american friends buying prices are & expect them in the uk. investing / flipping / dabbling whatever you want to call it is a different game over here.

    Can we get our own informal vote function applied to this thread, letting us pick which of the three? Would be fun to see the spread across the BrickPicker community.

    For whatever reason, the "Reality" shows in the US are always heavily edited for maximum drama. I stopped watching after a while because the formula got to be too repetitive. I think the US TV execs think we are too stupid that we cannot appreciate a honest competition without any drama. For example, compare the UK vs US versions of Kitchen Nightmare. In the UK version Gordon Ramsey actually concerned about the wellbeing of the restaurant owners there and he gave good advice per their situations. In the US version, it was all about yelling and screaming to each other.

    It feels a little arbitrary indeed. 1966 was the year the first moving train models were introduced(hence the 50 years on track set). The best I can find about 1980 is that there were several key changes introduced to the pre-existing train lineup, such as: - the switch to grey track (but not yet the premolded kind) - the train motor module got its final form - the magnet/buffer beam combination part was introduced - I believe it also marked the introduction of remote controlled points and lights On the other hand, the system was still 12V/4.5V and the change to 9V hadn't happened yet (this happened in 1991, just like the switch to premolded track). Guess we will get a 30yr 9V celebration next year? ;-)

    I feel like competition shows are grouped into one of the few formats: - You got your group of contestants that are put into fabricated drama situations and then are systematically eliminated as the season progresses. (Survivor, the Bachelor, Temptation Island, etc..) -You got your group of individuals that exhibit a talent and are judged to move on into the season. (America's Got Talent, Dancing With the stars, Masked Singer) - You got your direct competition scenarios where where you have a task and judges pick the best of each task. (Chopped, most cooking competition shows) There are probably some others but these are the ones I see all the time and get bored with them. I would like to see Lego Master closer to that ScyFy show Face Off where they had skilled make-up artists create scenes and costumes. This follows a little of the second and third formats I mentioned. I'd also like to see it something like Chopped where they are given a set number and style of pieces and they have to create objects in a given time allotment. What I don't really like is spending way too much time on contestant backstory which I feel manipulates the viewer into loving certain creators and rooting for them instead of focusing on the actual creations. And I also love Will Arnet but if the show is going to be him making quips every 30 seconds then it might be a turn off after a while.

    Yep. Last year, I met up with a gal to buy a SOLO Millennium Falcon. Asked if anything else I wanted, because "she could get any currently available set at Walmart" and sell for 50% off. Said her boyfriend or son worked there and got a great employee discount.

    Getting worried this show will be following the same tired format of reality competition shows...just with Lego. If this is going to be like every other singing, talent, cooking, dancing, ect... competition show, then I might just end up watching YouTube highlights. Shame because it could be fun to watch if they can come up with something worth watching.

    usually when no one responds to a good question it means no one here knows the answer LEGO has been doing some wacky distribution stuff w/ BHz: started off with SDCC ultra exclusives, then for a couple of years flooded the market where folks were seeing BHz even in dollar store, then retirement of the whole line rumors, had super short runs (mouse couple), special numbered exclusives w/ retail giants: Walmart and Target, currently experimenting with seasonals, and now become super selective on licensed source material: Star Wars and Disney. so really no clue on the recent Disney BHz sets. They look great and I doubt LEGO will flood the market again so if you like em...get em.

    Not a set, but there's something special about going to the Lego store and finding multiple small parts I currently use for MOCs that I sell. $200 in BrickLink parts for $15.99.

    Right there with you. I understand the joy of opening a pack and getting special cards, I grew up when baseball cards were booming, but I don’t understand these cards at all. The cartoons are so annoying, but so is all anime

    This finally took off in the US due to the new movie. I just sold through about 8 in ~48hours at $29.99. Buy in was in the ~$9.50 range, so it finally paid off.

    Sounds to me that it's more of a play to cater to an immensely large customer base with product that exhibits them in as positive way as possible. Not so much for appealing to the customers but to their government. Play nice or be struck by the banhammer.

    My eight year old decided he's done with Lego and would like to put all of his sets away. He's bagging them up as I type, and this is hitting me harder than I thought it would.
